Frequently Asked Questions About Our Mini Pigs

Q: How much do your mini pigs cost?
A: Each piglet is priced individually. Some of the factors include size, conformation, color, color pattern and random markings. Refer to our Pricing page and Available Piggies page for additional information.
Q: How big will my piggy get? What are their “adult size”?
A: We are the proud breeders of some of the world’s smallest pigs. Our exceptional breeding herd’s bloodlines include a variety of miniature breeds, resulting in the optimal offspring. The “estimated” mature size of our piglets is based on past litter results and pairing of specific breeder pigs. Our mature breeding herd’s height ranges from 11″-16″ tall (11″ being a rare exception).
Q: Do you offer a weight, height or size guarantee?
A: We do NOT guarantee weight, height or size of any piglet/pig at maturity. What determines the weight and size of a mini pig at maturity is not based solely on genetics. A healthy and well balanced diet, lifestyle and daily exercise regimen play a major part in the development and mature size of miniature pigs. These determining factors are impossible for us to enforce once they leave our care, therefore guaranteeing mature size inconceivable.
Q: Why are there so many names for miniature pigs?
A: We have selected size categories such as Mini Oink 1/2/3/4 as “language” to describe the size classification of our herd’s offspring. As miniature pig breeders it is necessary to identify breeding pig sizes in order to be honest with our clients and not mislead them about the expected adult size of their prospective miniature pig.
BEWARE, don’t be fooled by deceitful marketing tactics used by some pig breeders… labels such as nano, micro, pocket, dandie, pixie, teacup and toy are often used to make buyers believe that the piggy they are purchasing will remain that piglet size forever! NONE of those names represent a particular pig breed, nor will any mini pig fit in a teacup, purse or pocket once fully mature!!! It is nearly impossible for any breeder to guarantee the precise size that a piglet will have once they reach adulthood (3-5 years old).

- May I visit your farm to determine if I like pigs?
